This paper presents an embodiment of design integration framework corresponding to changes in the latest manufacturing environment. The embodied system is named by 'WEB-KBE System' because it supports a product design with a KBE technique based on web environment. The final purpose of the work is to implement a web-based integration design environment with a KBE technique to support non-skillful designers. The framework of the system Is designed to support necessary items in user-centric design environment. Two case studies were applied to the WEB-KBE system to evaluate the efficiency, flexibility, extensibility, and reusability of the system. The examples are  CART integration design environment construction and (2) Exhaust Duct Saddle Support integration design environment construction. In the former case, it took a period of 8 months for modeling and implementation of the WEB-KBE prototype system. However, with the high extensibility and reusability of WEB-KBE system, the second case required only a period of one month for modeling and implementation of the system. We conclude that the presented WEB-KBE system can bring fair effects on implementing a knowledge based design environment in aspect of time and expense.

CAD/CAM system may have such advantages of cost reduction, production time shortening, and product quality improvement. But current advanced versions of CAD/CAM system for 3-D NC data generation are too much expensive to purchase and too difficult to make full use for small-scale manufacturers whose main products are of 2-D simple shapes. The objective of this paper is to introduce a cost-effective way to 2-D NC data generation with a widely spread CAD software. Using VISUAL LISP in the well-known AUTO-CAD, the contents and steps of an automatic NC data generation program are presented for 2-D machining of contours and pockets. To approve the usefulness of program, a test application to a real part is exhibited also.
Shape Design for a Inline-Skate Frame

Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 10, issue 1, 2005, Pages 17~26
In-line skate generally consists of four major parts: boot, frame, bearing and wheel, and the most important part among those for necessary functionality is the frame. It is the most expensive, and it also makes a decisive role in practical race skating. The functional behavior of a frame is greatly affected by external dynamic forces as well as the static weight of a skater. We are proposing a new inline speed-skating frame design that has been improved in structural strength and weight for providing optimum speed in
Extended Adaptively Sampled Distance Fields Method for Rendering Implicit Surfaces with Sharp Features

Implicit surfaces are geometric shapes which are defined by implicit functions and exist in three-dimensional space. Recently, implicit surfaces have received much attention in solid modeling applications because they are easy to represent the location of points and to use boolean operations. However, it is difficult to chart points on implicit surfaces for rendering. As efficient rendering method of implicit surfaces, the original Adaptively Sampled Distance Fields (ADFs)
is to use sampled distance fields which subdivide the three dimensional space of implicit surfaces into many cells with high sampling rates in regions where the distance field contains fine detail and low sampling rates where the field varies smoothly. In this paper, in order to maintain the sharp features efficiently with small number of cells, an extended ADFs method is proposed, applying the Dual/Primal mesh optimization
to the original ADFs method. The Dual/Primal mesh optimization method maintains sharp features, moving the vertices to tangent plane of implicit surfaces and reconstructing the vertices by applying a curvature-weighted factor. The proposed extended ADFs method is applied to several examples of implicit surfaces to evaluate the efficiency of the rendering performance.
Design for Hydraulic Hose Routing Pathes and Fitting Angles
Kim Y.S. ; Kim J.J. ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 10, issue 1, 2005, Pages 40~48
A hydraulic hose is an important part of the hydraulic system which transmits power using pressurized fluids. It allows relative motion between components at each end of the hose assembly, and it is much easier to route a hose assembly than it is to bend and install a rigid tubing assembly. Unnecessary loads, which drop the hose's pressure capability and shorten service life, depend on a hose-routing. Therefore, the Hydraulic system designers must be aware to consider unnecessary load does not affect the here. For this consideration in an early stage of the design process, CAD system must support the hose assembly routing design function which is to generate routing path and design fitting angle properly. This paper proposes 2 methods. One is to generate curves that are similar to routing paths of the real hose assembly using the energy minimization method and the optimization method. The other is to design fitting angles that are important design elements of a hose assembly using the Parallel Transport Frame. To implement the proposed methods above, commercial CAD software, CATIA has been integrated with our program.

Existing CAD systems have configured geometry data and it is necessary to extend the configured geometry into a knowledge-based system. An intelligent CAD system emerged to provide such a knowledge-based system. However the intelligent CAD system has a limited product model to represent various knowledge models. This paper presents a model, called extended intelligent CAD model, which can extend the product model of the intelligent CAD system into further detailed knowledge model. The extended intelligent CAD model includes a whole design process knowledge and an efficiency of the model has been verified via a knowledge based wiper design system. The model can improve the functionality and efficiency of the existing CAD systems.

In the global ship structure and vibration analysis, the FE(finite element) analysis model is required in the early design stage before the 3D CAD model is defined. And the analysis model generation process is a time-consuming job and takes much more time than the engineering work itself. In particular, ship structure has too many associated structural members such as stringers, stiffness and girders etc. These structural members should be satisfied as the constraints in analysis modeling. Therefore it is necessary to support generation of analysis model with satisfying these constraints as an automatic manner. For the effective support of the global ship analysis modeling, a method to generate analysis model using initial design information within ship design process, that hull form offset data and compartment data, is developed. In order to easily handle initial design information and FE model information, flexible data structure is proposed. An automatic quadrilateral mesh generation algorithm using initial design information to satisfy the constraints imposed on the ship structure is also proposed. The proposed data structure and mesh generation algorithm are applied for the various type of vessels for the usability test. Through this test, we have verified the stability and usefulness of this system including mesh generation algorithm.

A 3D solid element mesh generation algorithm was newly developed. 3D surface points of global rectangular coordinates were supplied by a 3D laser scanner. The algorithm is strait forward and simple but it generates mixed solid elements such as hexagonal, pyramid and prism types. Then, the surface triangular or rectangular elements were generated from the solid elements. The key of the algorithm is elimination of elements and 3D adaptive surface smoothing using given 3D surface point data.
